A downloadable project for Windows

Tweet Islands is a project designed to characterise and visualise data collected from Twitter. Initially this project was developed as part of my dissertation for university.

It's a bit odd and quite different from the things I usually make, but I still think it's a interesting application despite not really being very fun or interactive.


  • Generate islands from tweets
    • Retrieve tweets from user timelines or a basic query search 
  • Walk around said islands in first person mode
  • Take screenshots to use as postcards and upload them to Twitter
  • Watch seagulls circle islands with #hashtags
    • Can you find the 3 secret seagull types?

If the download or application itself is broken in any way or ceases to function at some point in the future, give us a prod so I can come and fix it.

I can't run because "UnityPlayer.dll is missing" despite the fact it's clearly included with the files.

Uploading a fixed version now, cheers for the heads up!


Whoa, nice itch.io flag
